Marie, Jeff, Sherry and family, We were so heartbroken to learn of Glenn's passing but take great comfort in knowing he was ready to meet his God. Glenn will always hold a special place in our hearts. The past several years we always looked forward to our trips to Sevierville with Jeff and Karen to see our "adopted" parents. We will forever treasure the stories Glenn would share during our visits. Whether it was stories of the past, the present, the future, politics, church, life or whatever, Glenn was a master at sharing his thoughts and wisdom. We will miss those stories. We will miss his gentle, welcoming spirit. We will miss Glenn. We will cherish all the memories made with Glenn and hide them in our hearts. While Glenn may be gone for a while, we know and have the "blessed" assurance we will one day meet again. We look forward to that day!
